New Covenant Church UK
NCC UK is a registered charity, a member of the Evangelical Alliance and a BMC with Nigerian roots. The central administrative office is at 506-510 Old Kent Road, SE1 in London. The history of NCC UK is that it is not a Nigerian Church. The Church is multi-cultural. Its members are not just from Nigeria and those Nigerians are both first and second generation UK based.
It was registered as a charity in England (No 1004343) on 30th August 1991, with the following objects:
- Advancement of the Christian Faith;
- Relief of persons in conditions of need, hardship or distress or who are aged or sick;
- Relief of poverty
The organisation has over the years carried out a wide range of social, educational and religious projects (and has worked with both Christian and community development organisations) within a number of boroughs across and beyond London. We also provide periodic surgeries on health, employment, counselling, and housing.
Apart from personal efforts by individual ministers and branches of our church, the New Covenant Church is a member of the UK Evangelical Alliance (EA), African and Caribbean Evangelical Alliance (ACEA) of which our General Overseer Rev. Dr. Paul Jinadu is President. Our branches are also encouraged to be active in the Pentecostal Fellowship Prayer Networks in their respective boroughs and localities.
Though the Church started in the U.K. in 1986 (but registered in 1991), we have not concentrated on building a large Church in one location. Rather we have concentrated on discharging people for leadership, sending them out to fulfil their ministries in their various communities. We currently have 44 Centres in the U.K.
We stand for the whole gospel. We believe in everything the Bible declares. However;
- Firstly, holiness is fundamental in God's Kingdom. It is the nature of God. Righteousness is not only right standing; it must give rise to right doing.
- Secondly, each branch of the NCC will emphasise the nature of the ministry of their Pastor. Every congregation is free to fully express themselves as the Holy Spirit will want them to.
- Thirdly, many of our leaders and members are prosperous in the real sense of the word, not only spiritually but materially and financially.
The truth of the matter is that we do not display our crowns on our heads; we cast them down at the feet of Jesus.
